Electronics Recycling

Students can recycle the following personal items at either of the Geek locations — no University-owned items may be recycled with us. Items other than a handheld device (e.g., cell phone, PDA, MP3 player), a printer cartridge, batteries, or cord/cable may require a picture ID to recycle. We do not pickup items. We reserve the right to refuse items if we have no space to store them!

Once an item is delivered for recycling, IT Geeks cannot return it to the owner. Participation in this program constitutes a relinquishment of all rights to the item delivered to IT Geeks.
